A great place to stay and rest or make walks, bathe in waterfalls, enjoy the scenery and fauna. Quiet and peaceful, in a relatively remote area (accessible only by 3-wheel or motor) though not totally out of the world. The guide (a translator is helpful here) is very knowledgeable and will for a reasonable fee escort you on walks if you like.
The hosts' enthousiasm about the lodge, rainforest and food, to name a few, is contagious !
The owner, Anil, is a visionary of eco design with every detail thought of! I could not begin to list his ideas and inventions - the treelooking toilet building, all homemade furniture and decorations, planned water-power station for electricity (currently powered by generator during limited hours)
The rooms (6 in 3 cabins) are complete incl.private cold shower/toilet and clean, with a porch.
The restaurant area is a sight in itself decorated with posters of self made photos of local flora.
The typical SriLankan "village style" food, most of its home grown produce, not only abundant but the very best we had in 2 SL tours, thanks to nona Iranganie!
Our only regret was having booked just 2 nights, we must surely return to Sinharaja Seyana Eco Lodge! We wish Anil and Iranganie many more happy & contented guests!
